Hardware firewalls

Further to my question yesterday... does anyone know what I should look for in a firewall to protect my new server?

I have seen one advertised http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.html?NGR-745143

but am not sure if it meets the bill. Seems to hit the spot to me, incluidng VPN support.

I use that firewall/router myself and love it.  No complaints here.

I just purchased that appliance for my home network. It replaced an old box with Wingate software. I loved the fact that I was able to figure out just about everything from their web console.

I have several servers behind this appliance and I was able to forward ports to the appropiate internal IP addresses. This appliance is pretty solid and I would recommend it for anybody that wants a flexible firewall/router appliance.

I haven't tried the VPN portion, as I don't needed it, yet. I have read from other users that the VPN is quite solid as well.
